Those troublemakers at UPI are now reporting that there may be more mad cows involved in the recent Canadian case: Experts "cannot eliminate the possibility at least one other infected animal has resided within North America, its identity or fate unknown." The original mad cow, they say, "most likely had contracted the deadly disease from eating feed contaminated by the tissue from another cow carrying the illness." Contaminated feed, huh? But that would only be a problem if... say... Feed maker owns up to mad cow violation, FDA says. Uh oh. "But the prohibited feed posed a 'very, very small risk,' she says, because there have been no cases of mad cow disease in U.S. cattle." Round and round the logic goes.
